Bottle. Nice chewy smell of raisins and molasses right out of the bottle. Pours a deep brown under a thick brown head, wafting the smell of brown sugar and cola through the room Taste is a little fruity, with a bit of dark roast malt astringency following. Touch of chocolate, molasses or rum. Despite its low price and doubtless roundabout way of getting to my glass, it is indeed a nice, robust, well-made porter.

Barwa niemalże czarna, rubinowe refleksy. Piana gęsta, beżowa, ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat mało intensywny, czekolada, kawa i minimalny DMS, tj. gotowane warzywa. Bardzo gęste, niczym likier. W smaku dominuje gorzka czekolada, bombonierka, później kawa. Lekka metaliczność. Treściwe i przyjemne. Jeden z lepszych porterów bałtyckich.

Bottle. Clear dark brown/black with a red hue and a nice spongy two finger tanned head. Aroma: Sweet with some inky/rubbery roasted malts, cheap coffee and dark fruits like dried prunes. Taste: Sweet and rich with chocolate, caramel, coffee, licorice, some raisins and figs and an slight inky bitter finish. Medium to bigger body with soft round carbonation and oily thick texture. Pretty decent rich hearty porter. Maybe a tad too sweet and fatty. And I’m not too fond of the inky parts. Otherwise, ok.

this company is trying to win people back with good beers, they are slowly doing just that. This is quite good. Not too much carbonation, quite sweet for porter. Worth trying.

Aroma of coffee, chocolate and dried plums. Taste: medium sweet, coffee, wine, lightly metallic. Much lighter than polish examples of style, but doesn’t seem watery.

Nurmis (186) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2016
0,5l bottle from alko. Black coloured creamy liquid, big foamy tanned head, low carbonation. Aroma is mainly chocolate, some caramel and hops on the side. Taste is heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Too sweet for my personal liking, but a quality beer nonetheless.
